What Is TMJ?

Dr. Bodensteiner talking to a patient about TMJ Treatment

Are you teeth starting to show wear and tear from nighttime teeth grinding? Have you had a persistent headache caused by clenching your teeth during sleep? Visalia, CA patients recommend Dr. Michael Bodensteiner because he and our team can eliminate teeth grinding and clenching with a personalized night mouthguard!

TMJ stands for “temporomandibular joint.” It is the jaw joint where the lower jaw attaches to the skull. When the jaw joint isn’t working properly, problems can arise, thus resulting in TMJ disorder or TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).

Here are some symptoms which may be signs of a TMJ disorder:

  • Tender jaw muscles

  • Frequent headaches and/or earaches

  • Pain when chewing or yawning

  • Jaw clicking or popping noises

  • Snoring

Issues such as teeth grinding, missing teeth, and misplaced teeth can contribute greatly to TMJ disorder.

With experience and investigation in the neuromuscular field, Dr. Bodensteiner is skilled to analyze, evaluate, and balance the muscles related to TMJ discomfort. At our practice, we use Tek-Scan, the best in modern technology. Tek-Scan is a computerized sensor for measuring bite pressure.

“This helps identify where and what is necessary to restore an equal distribution of bite pressure,” explains Dr. Bodensteiner. Since the bite timing pressure and movement are captured, we can thus produce a personalized nighttime splint or night mouthguard to correct the TMJ problem.
